recording of Quintus Oakes: A Detective Story, by Charles Ross Jackson.
There have been a series of assaults at the manor house, one sending the mistress of the house insane with fear, another escalating to murder. There are reports of a tread on the stairs and shady figures disappearing from view. The servants blame the supernatural, but Quintus Oakes gets to the bottom of the mystery.

Enjoyed this mystery novel
The detective Oakes and his assistant encounter murder in a quiet town. Oakes employs some interesting tactics to catch the criminal.
I thought this was a mostly good story, if a bit predictable and far-fetched in spots. Readers were good.

Kinda different detective story
Thanks to all the various readers for an entertaining read!
Oakes is a little bit of a Sherlock Holmes in his approach.
There is no feminine influence in the story; just grown up boys having adventures ....
